Cinema has an unstoppable power to convince…And I suspect, as the years go by, it will become the only medium with which we can influence the world.
Robert Fisk, Journalist, Author, from ‘The Age of Warriors’
The story of the global anti-Iraq war movement of 2003 is a relatively unknown one – yet it is one that our society needs because there are profound lessons to learn, for both citizens and government alike.
It is a story full of fascinating connections and threads, and populated by many amazing people and movements which continue the anti-war struggle to the present day.
As We Are Many director, Amir Amirani says, ‘it is important that young people feel they have a stake in society, that they realise the power they have, both individually and collectively’.
The film shows us what this looks like. By understanding what has come before, We Are Many empowers viewers to learn more about how society is changed, and how they too can take part in making that change happen.”
